Green Moss Bead Embroidered Necklace EBWC

Imagine a Misty Winter's Dawn in a Forest, where you're walking around the forest with the mist around you, its cold and wet and the sun is hardly visible - all the colors you notice seem to be matte with hardly any sharp definition of trees, plants, ground.

Especially if there is no direct sunlight coming through the trees, you get the underground in the forest to be one of "Green Moss."

I designed this necklace to be "Green Moss", with the occasional stone, pebble, and a lonely leaf as the focal areas. The center cabochon is an Agate from the Orange River, here in South Africa, and typically reflects the branches of a tree in the Moss Forest.

I beaded on leatherette, used C Lon D and ultra suede as backing. A chain finishes off the necklace, being a rustic color to compliment the "Green Moss" effect. Lobster clasp added for closure.

The length of the necklace is 21 inches (54cm), but additional chain can be added to provide additional length.
